Cannabis oil relieves chronic seizures suffered by six-year-old niece of Aston Villa star Gabby Agbonlahor

She’s the youngest legally-approved user of the drug

The parents of a six-year-old girl from Birmingham have been treating their daughter’s undiagnosed brain condition with cannabis oil.

Jayla Agbonlahor, niece of Aston Villa footballer Gabby Agbonlahor, was rushed to hospital when she was just days old after her parents had noticed that she’d stopped breathing.

Initially, doctors suspected epilepsy, however, after five months of hospital care they identified that the problem was in baby Jayla’s brain, reports the Sunday Mercury.

12 Different Studies Exploring the Anti-Cancer Properties of CBD Oil

In 2016, the cannabis industry grew by 30 percent. But its relaxing properties are not the only reason for the interest in medical marijuana dispensary outlets across the US.

Research across the globe is all pointing to CBD oil as having high potential for fighting cancer on various levels. CBD is short for cannabidiol. CBD is a compound found in the cannabis plant, but without the psychoactive element that the THC strain has. This means CBD does not give you the high that most people think of when they hear of cannabis. But what does CBD do and why is it being heralded as the new miracle cure?

Here are 12 studies that show why CBD oil could be the best discovery to happen during our generation.

1. CBD restrains angiogenesis by various mechanisms.

In this study, researchers found that CBD inhibits the growth of various tumors. Its effect on both tumor and endothelial cells supports the speculation that CBD is an effective agent for treating cancer.

Why We Need Cannabidiol Research: How CBD Oil Treats Seizures in Children with Epilepsy

Childhood is a time of exploration when an unknown world jumps out of every hole and from behind every tree. It’s these unknowns that also can make childhood so scary. You don’t know why the sky is thundering, why your mom is so dark-eyed and angry today, or why you keep feeling sick. You don’t know why you are hurting. For children with epilepsy, every day can be a painful mystery, where your own brain is hurting your body. And for parents of children with epilepsy, every day is one where you ask for help for your child. Today, though, it seems like that help’s not just imminent — it already exists. That help is cannabis oil.

Cannabis oil (also known as Cannabidiol or CBD oil) has been shown to be effective for children who have tried everything else. It reduces seizures and allows the child to develop and live a normal life. It’s non-addictive and has not been shown to have many behavioral implications. Right now, though, medicine is teetering on the edge of accepting CBD oil, mostly due to old prejudices about marijuana. For the sake of children, those can’t be allowed to get in the way of science. There needs to be strict and rigorous testing, free from prejudice, to make sure that CBD oil is safe and effective.

8 Amazing Facts About the Endocannabinoid System – and Why We Should Tell the World About It

Did you know your body has an endocannabinoid system? A year ago I didn’t either.

I’m no doctor, but I thought I was familiar with the key biological systems in the body. Turns out though, I was wrong. That’s because unless you’re a research scientist or work in the field of medical cannabis, it’s unlikely you’ll ever have been told about the endocannabinoid system. And yet, it has been hailed as “the most important physiologic system involved in establishing and maintaining human health.”

Why do so few people know about the endocannabinoid system?

So what’s the big mystery? Well, it might have something to do with how the endocannabinoid system (ECS) was discovered. Back in the 1990s scientists were trying to understand how THC, the psychoactive substance in the cannabis plant, elicits its effect on the body. What they uncovered was a complex network of receptors (CB1) in the brain and central nervous system that were a perfect fit for the THC molecule.

Doctors Gave Boy 3 Days to Live, Then His Mom Secretly Gave Him Cannabis

Both anecdotal evidence and clinical research are beginning to show the promise of cannabis in treating a variety of health issues. According to one family in the U.K., cannabis helped a dying teenage boy recover fully from complications from leukemia. The family recently appeared on the British talk show, This Morning, to discuss their experience.

Callie Blackwell’s son Deryn had been fighting leukemia followed by Langerhans cell sarcoma for four years — since the age of ten. Following doctors’ fourth and final attempt at a bone marrow transplant, they warned the family it was the last opportunity to save his life.

Woman Claims Her Lung Cancer Was Cured By Cannabis Oil

Many stories of cannabis oil curing cancer have arisen, but are they valid?

There have been many stories unfolding about people who have cured themselves of terminal cancers by using pure cannabis oil rather than going through chemotherapy. For instance, Michelle Aldrich was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer in January of 2012. Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related mortality in the US. In 2015, there were 221,200 new cases of lung cancer diagnosed – of those, 158,040 have died. Aldrich was classified with stage three cancer, and rather than forgo chemotherapy, chose to use highly concentrated cannabis oil to help her cancer instead.

Within four months, her CT scans came back with her tumor massively reduced in size. She had what remained of the tumor surgically removed, and she is now cancer free.

Active Compound in Cannabis Found to Shield the Brain from Alzheimer’s Disease

Bad news for Alzheimer’s disease: THC (the active chemical compound in marijuana) is officially acknowledged to remove the toxic bundle of amyloid beta protein that onsets the evolution of the disease, ultimately damaging the brain beyond repair.

This late discovery is backed up by previous studies revealing the effective and protective qualities of cannabinoids and THC over patients suffering from this neurodegenerative disease.

Little is known about what exactly causes Alzheimer’ disease, but so far it’s believed to be caused by two types of lesions: neurofibrillary tangles and amyloid plaques. The amyloid plaques form dense groups between the neurons, and the neurofibrillary tangles are produced by defective tau proteins that bundle up into a thick, insoluble mass in neurons.

There Are Now 100 Scientific Studies That Prove Cannabis Cures Cancer

Cannabis is a Schedule I drug in the United States. That means the government has designated the plant as having no accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse.

No accepted medical use? There are scores of studies that say differently.

Rick Simpson is a medical marijuana activist, and he has been on a crusade of healing. He considers Cannabis to be the most medicinally active plant that humans can use on this planet.

Marijuana has been shown in some cases to effectively treat numerous types of cancer, improve immunity, and fight anxiety and pain.

The most important health discovery of the century for cancer and more!

CBD-benefits.gifIf you or someone you know and love is faced with cancer or another life threatening or debilitating illness, and the information shared here and on our cancer page connects with you, please reach out to us through our contact page to learn more about how to implement this strategy as our family did.

It’s been said that the most powerful weapons that a cancer patient possesses in their fight are information and an open mind.  Unfortunately, we along with nearly all new patients diagnosed with cancer didn’t have a chance to use these weapons.  I think back to sitting in the oncologist’s office when my wife was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer in October of 2012, and in a neurologist’s office for my son’s glioma (brain tumor) diagnosis in July of 2013, and having the fear of God put into us.  There is no time for gathering information and keeping an open mind to alternative treatments when dealing with the medical establishement.  Their answer is “immediately start our prescribed treatment plan, or certain death awaits”.  After the initial shock of hearing this, we immediately began treatment as nearly everyone who has the shock of hearing “you have cancer” does.

Cannabis Derived CBD Used To Treat Alzheimer’s Disease

cannabisRecent research out of Australia took mice that were bred to mimic symptoms of Alzheimers and who were given CBD from cannabis, the non-psychoactive cannabinoid caused a drastic improvement in memory within the mice tested. Although more studies are still going to be needed to get further results, early results are showing signs in memory improvement and physical results will be tested next. [1]

“Cannabinoids are the first and only class of drugs that have ever been effective,” said Gary Wenk, a professor of neuroscience, immunology and medical genetics at Ohio State University.

Alzheimer’s, a neurological disease causing people to forget skills, familiar faces or even simple things they did that day, is becoming a larger issue in our world as the food that surrounds us and our environment often contains heavy metals. Currently affecting over 5 million in America and with rates of about 1 in 9 who may experience it in their lifetime, many believe that as the baby boomers continue to age, numbers will sky rocket.

Endocannabinoids Critical for Brain Function

Artistic surreal female profile in a metamorphosis with natureEndocannabinoids are derived from fatty acids in a very complex process. They serve as critical signals for a wide variety of brain functions. “Endo” refers to cannabinoids made in the brain, as opposed to “phytocannabinoids” made in plants and ingested. For simplicity, this post will use the general term “cannabinoids” when referring to the two endocannabinoids critical for brain function—AEA and 2-AG.

A previous post described the extremely elaborate system of fatty acid derivatives that are critical signaling molecules. Two specific fatty acids, DHA and ARA, enter the brain and cellular membranes where they attach to phospholipids for storage and await release by special enzymes. One in 10,000 of these fatty acids are unattached to the membrane lipoproteins and are actively metabolized into many important signals through the mysterious Land cycle. One well-known derivative of ARA is prostaglandin, a vital part of the inflammation response. Perhaps, the most important derivatives are cannabinoids that are critical for neuron and glia function. In the fetus, cannabinoid signals determine the fate of neuronal stem cells and glia and then switch to become the critical factors in the creation of the synapses for the developing brain. They are vital for every aspect of the creation of the structure of the fetal brain including directing neuron migration and axons and dendrite development.

CBD Oil Saved This Man From One of the Worst Man-Made Disasters in US History

Cannabis is increasingly known to treat a variety of ailments, but a new, unexpected use for the plant recently has emerged amid one of the worst man-made disasters in American history. Thousands of residents were sickened and evacuated when a decrepit methane storage well at SoCalGas’ northern Los Angeles Aliso Canyon facility ruptured, initiating a months-long blowout that unleashed 100,000 metric tons of methane into the atmosphere from October to February — though it’s possible an even higher volume was released.

Residents of Porter Ranch and other nearby communities experienced nausea, bloody noses, and skin rashes, to name a few symptoms. One resident of nearby Granada Hills, located only two miles from Aliso Canyon, though ineligible for relocation, began to experience staggering cluster headaches. They are often called “suicide headaches” because the chronic pain can be so extreme, doctors have seen patients kill themselves to escape it. The man,  who wishes to remain anonymous for reasons explained in this article, developed the condition just days before SoCalGas publicly acknowledged the leak. With few options and in severe pain, he found relief from cannabidiol (CBD) oil.
